This page shows a sample of Fanfare's audio clip service for an article/review page, and performer and label index pages. Most links are disabled on this page.
You can now provide Fanfare subscribers with sample audio clips at the Fanfare Archive for a nominal fee. Samples can be of any length, and the links will be placed next to reviews of your CDs, whether they’re new or old. (See/hear an example to the right.)
You can either send us the actual samples or the CDs, from which we’ll extract the samples. There’s no limit to the number of samples you can use for each review.
The cost for each sample will be $10 per minute or fraction of a minute. The sample will remain at the site for one year, and you’ll be able to renew the sample for another year when the link is about to expire. (If you’re a musician, be sure to obtain permission from your label and, if relevant, the copyright holder of the music on your CD, to use the samples at Fanfare’s site.)
To proceed, please contact Fanfare’s Webmistress, Celeste Stokely at firstname.lastname@example.org or (719) 792-0135. She’ll be glad to assist you with any questions you might have, technical or otherwise. She’ll also give you access to the Fanfare Archive so that you can see the reviews of your CDs that are currently available on-line.

Fanfare audio clip sample service - what we need from you.
To play your audio on the Fanfare Archive, we need you to send information and files to Fanfare's Webmistress, Celeste Stokely, email@example.com.
1. Fanfare Archive Article: Which Fanfare article do you want to display this on?
The audio will be provided on Fanfare reviews of the recording you want to play. Ideally, send us links to the articles in the Fanfare Archive where the audio will go. But, we can help you find the articles if you'll tell us the name of the work, composer, label, and major performers.
2. Permission: Get permission before submitting any track to us
To play any track, we must have permission from the copyright holder, or we're breaking the law. You must get permission from the label or other copyright holder, and tell us if you have their permission. This is your responsibility and we will not be held liable for legal problems if you don't get permission from those who hold the copyright.
3. Audio tracks: Send us the audio tracks you want us to use
Email the audio tracks you want us to play, either as full tracks or clips of the tracks.These tracks must be either mp3 or wav format. (We will convert wav files to mp3.) Each audio file must be under 100MB. If you're sending us large files, let us know and we'll create an FTP account for you to use instead of email. If you want us to use only the first 30 seconds of a longer track that you send, let us know.
The track filenames will display as the track names in the audio player, so don't name your files as "track1.mp3", but something useful like "Cantata in B: Adagio.mp3". Spaces are allowed in filenames. If you can't send us the digital audio files, we can get the tracks from a physical CD, even though it will take a little longer. We'll keep the CD. You can send the CD to: Celeste Stokely, 163 14th Trail, Cotopaxi CO 81223, USA
4. Track Order: Tell us what order to display the tracks
We need you to tell us which track is 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc. Please don't make us guess, because we'll probably get it wrong.
5. Cover Art: Email us the cover art for the recording
The cover art for your recording will display in the audio player. Send the art in either jpg or png format, at least 200px wide. Zip the cover art image file and attach the zip file to your email. We can not scan the cover of a CD you send us. If you don't send us the cover art, we can still use your audio, but we strongly suggest that you send us the cover art.
6. Names: Send us the names of the recording and artists
Send us the name of your recording, and the artist or ensemble name(s) for each track you want to use. These will be displayed in the audio player.
